Emergency Fuel Service for Data Centers: Keep Your Generators Running with Emergency Generator Fuel
Emergency Fuel Service for Data Centers
Data centers are the places that can’t be offline. If power is off for even a day, everyone and every customer is impacted, wherever they are. Your company loses revenue with every minute of downtime. Data center facilities run 24/7, providing a safe place for companies to store, use and manage their essential data away from their offices. Keeping your customer’s data safe is of the utmost importance.
When a disaster strikes and the power goes down, you’ll depend on your generator to get back online. But to keep it running, you’ll need more fuel for continuous backup power. Getting generator fuel during an emergency can be expensive, and may be nearly impossible to find.
The Uptime Institute recommends 12 hours of fuel for all tiers of centers. Many designers aren’t as familiar with the fuel design part of a data center, and may fail to include an adequate amount or tank size in the event of a power shutdown. Many centers under-estimate the amount of fuel they need to for their generator until normal power is restored and risk a shutdown.
Review your data center’s disaster plan. Regular testing is necessary to make sure everything will work the way you need it to. If it’s been a few years since anyone has looked at your center’s disaster recovery plan, make time to review and update your plan for the next time the power goes down.
Keep Your Data Center Generator Running With Emergency Generator Fuel
Starting your data center’s backup generator will keep everything going, as long as you have fuel. But without a contingency plan for generator fuel, your generator becomes the weakest link. Fuel planning should be an essential part of disaster and continuity plans.
Including an emergency fuel delivery to your plan ensures that your data center’s generator will run as long as you need it. Reserve your fuel supply with Specialty Fuel Services so it’s always available.
